“It’s humbling to know that I am now officially representing the hopes, dreams, and interests of 1 million Californians in the State Senate,” said Borgeas. “I’m excited to get to work on their behalf to make progress on the issues that matter most to our district such as water, jobs, and education. I promise to fight for all our communities to ensure a better tomorrow, but I do have a favor to ask of the people. Please send me a message via and tell me what I can do to help you and your family. Your feedback will help make our state government truly of the people, for the people, and by the people.”
